The Jovo-NoNo Rating

AVERAGE JOVO-NONO RATING
+5.5
ACCUMULATIVE RATING: +22 (4 GP)
LAST GAME: +4 (at Minnesota)

SUMMARY
Game 1 - vs Phoenix: +1
Game 2 - at Edmonton: +16
Game 3 - at Detroit: +1
Game 4 - at Minnesota: +4


Welcome to the Jovo-NoNo Rating!!! Hopefully, this will become the Jovo-Cop Rating one day. I would love nothing more!

This thread will follow the play of Ed Jovanovski, and assign him a rating based on his on-ice play... good AND bad. For good plays, he gets a plus point. For bad plays, he gets a minus point. The plus/minus points range from 1 to 5. The better the play, the higher his plus point (up to +5). The worse the play, the lower his minus point (down to -5). The rating will be mostly subjective, based on my evaluation of his play. However, I will endeavour to describe each play accurately, so my rating can be scrutinized.

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE?
Ed Jovanovski is a god in Vancouver. Everyone loves him. I used to as well. But after watching him closely over the past couple years, I've come to a conclusion. Ed Jovanovski does more harm to the Canucks than good. Sure, he makes a brilliant play once in a while, or throws a crushing body check. But most of the time, he is badly out of position, taking stupid penalties or coughing up the puck in his own zone. But whenever I try to explain how bad he is, all I hear is "Jovo-Cop is Awesome!" So, that's why I'm doing this. To prove that he's not!

WILL YOU EAT YOUR WORDS IF YOU'RE WRONG?
Yes!!! I hope beyond all hope that I will be wrong. Maybe the "new NHL" will benefit Jovanovski and make him a Norris Trophy candidate. If he maintains a "plus" rating in this thread over the season, I will GLADLY eat my words and declare Jovanovski a GREAT defenceman. But until then, he will be under my watchful eye!

ARE YOU GOING TO RATE HIM FOR EVERY GAME?
No. Unfortunately I will miss some games. And I can't rate him for untelevised away games. And who knows, maybe I'll just get tired and give up. But for now, I'm having fun.

Got any more questions? I'll gladly answer them.

Interesting.

The problem is that because this is all subjective, you aren't really proving anything.

if you are someone who declares himself critical of 55 how does he get a +1 for last night? Wasnt it him who let Ballard cruise in all alone for PHX first goal?

It sure was!!! He got a -4 for that play. The +1 Rating was for ALL his shifts combined. But... a GREAT player (like Jovanovski is declared to be), should not be a +1 player. He should be atleast +6 or +10 each game. A mediocre player should be +1.

That is why I will try to accurately describe each play. I would invite anyone who disagrees with any given rating to point it out. I will then review the game tape and adjust it accordingly.

Subjective... yes... but I'm willing to review my ratings.

Perhaps you could do a shift-by-shift analysis of every defenseman in the league so that you could properly rank Jovo compared to his peers.

Better yet, I will rank each of your posts and at the end of the season we can see how good of a poster you are. So far you are a -3.

If you all just stopped giving him the attention he craves, I bet he gives up after three games.

Damn, I really suck! It's a good thing I'm not getting paid 3.99 million to do this.

Let me guess... you're a big Jovo fan.

Right... it's the attention I crave!

I'll tell you what... I'll bet you a $100 donation to Canuck Place that I don't give up after three games.

I dunno why everyone's giving him such a hard time, I thought this was hilarious. Totally whacko and obsessive, but hilarious all the same.

How do you know he doesn't enjoy it? Looks pretty fun to me. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

Frankly, I thought this was pretty cool.

Top 10 in Norris voting
One of the top defenseman on the 2002 Canadian Olympic team (played PP and the last minute of 1 goal game)

It isn't just Canuck fans who think highly of him...

Why shake your head? That would be incredibly interesting and valuable!!

It's amazing to me how many people reject information like this. What are you afraid of? o_O

So are you just going to update this thread after every game with that "report?" No way you can keep that up.
